Born and raised in East Flatbush, Casanova proudly bears the standard for Brooklyn hip-hop. Offering a heartfelt and aggressive salute to the 718, Cas shares “So Brooklyn,” a cinematic new music video from his upcoming album Behind These Scars.
Directed by Rock Davis, the video is a glorious travelogue that touches upon all aspects of Brooklyn life and culture, with overhead shots highlighting the Two Bridges and Coney Island, and glimpses of street signs marking neighborhoods rich in hip-hop history. Mobbing with guest artist Fabolous, the Roc Nation artist commands the screen, shouting his streetwise bars in front of a mural of Brooklyn hero The Notorious B.I.G. and beneath the Manhattan Bridge.
Packed with cameos, ranging from NBA star Lance Stephenson, to viral dance extraordinaire 2 Milly, to boxer Zab Judah, to veteran rap presences like Papoose, Maino, and Lil Cease, and rising rap stars like Flipp Dinero, 22Gz, and Fetty Luciano, “So Brooklyn” takes just four minutes to compile a case for Brooklyn as hip-hop’s cultural capital.
